  • In large bowl, lightly beat yolks on medium speed. Gradually add granulated sugar, beating until pale and slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Mix in butter. Add flour mixture alternately with milk, stirring with wooden spoon until combined.

  • On well-floured surface, with floured rolling pin, roll dough into 1/2-inch thickness. Let rest for 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, heat oil to 365 F (a cube of bread will be browned and crisp after 1 minute) in a heavy-duty saucepan over medium-high heat.

  • Cut into doughnuts with 2-3/4-inch round cutter along with 3/4-inch round cutter for the centers. Gather scraps and re-roll if needed.

Coating:
  • Place cinnamon-sugar in a small bowl. Carefully slip the doughnuts and doughnut holes, 3 or 4 at a time, into the hot oil. Fry until golden, turning once, about 2 to 3 minutes total per batch. Drain doughnuts on paper towel, then transfer still-warm doughnuts to cinnamon-sugar coating and roll to cover completely. Serve warm.
